Living Exuvia is a piece of equipment in Torment: Tides of Numenera.


The biological armor is form-fitting and easy to wear, yet offers superior protection. Upon closer inspection, you find a synthsteel device shaped much like a human spine fitted into the back of the exuvia, which binds to the wearer's nervous system. It provides additional mental fortitude, but it also makes the armor stiffer and harder to wear.
